We all cheer when our teams beat rivals Georgia, LSU, Florida and Tennessee in recruiting athletes.

We should also cheer when we trump those states in recruiting jobs.

Alabama's recruited thousands this year.  The challenge will be continuing to find workers as we continue to recruit thousands more.

It is imperative the system operate with integrity and ramps up to meet the exciting work force development challenges ahead.
